    my laptop cant se the doc in a printble format. can you send the pdf to surplusdriller@gmail.com ? thanks for a good video

    Silly question perhaps, but why would I want a 2.4Ghz Helical Antenna? What possible use is it to me? Do you use it for Televisions? WiFI? Eat radioactive pot-noodles?

    ... Not that templates are bad or anything, and I'm sure the video gets the point across - but taking the time to write out an exhaustive step-by-step would help out a whole lot.

    Sorry, I am not seeing a link to the template for the proper number of turns.
